Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Salt is better mixed in with ingredients than to add on to food later after it has been cooked. Its infused rather than just scattered around hoping for better taste. When we look for God's grace in certain situations, we try to add salt to our wounds to feel better. But need to be totally filled with Christ so that when we need His Mercy were not surprised when results are not what expected. Listen to Job's heart in Job 6 : “If my misery could be weighed and my troubles be put on the scales, they would outweigh all the sands of the sea. That is why I spoke impulsively. For the Almighty has struck me down with his arrows. Their poison infects my spirit. God’s terrors are lined up against me. Don’t I have a right to complain? Don’t wild donkeys bray when they find no grass, and oxen bellow when they have no food? Don’t people complain about unsalted food? Does anyone want the tasteless white of an egg? My appetite disappears when I look at it; I gag at the thought of eating it! I feel for Job for what He was experiencing. We think of salt as only the external but we need it desperately for the internal. Our spirit needs the Salt of the Holy Spirit to help us during the blandness of trial. Be salted with his presence, infused with his power. Life will taste better even when the enemy serves us dishes that are cold without flavor. Everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good for seasoning. But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again? You must have the qualities of salt among yourselves and live in peace with each other.
Meditate Job 6:6
